We came upon this place quite by chance. Having dropped our son off to meet a friend we thought we'd look around, we passed plenty of places to drink and eat but all seemed to be on the busy through road and we wanted to be by the river. I noticed a sign in the car park and decided to... More

We regularly pop into this fabulous shop, you never know what treasure you might find. We always have a delicious cup of real leafed tea & a huge slice of yummy cake. The tea room opens onto the river which is a perfect suntrap to watch the river go by. We highly recommend a visit. They inspired me to open... More

Cream tea (coffee for me) was yummy and visiting with my little dog she was served two bone biscuits. That is what I call being made welcome!! Anyone having a moan needs to take a breath and think again! Nothing to adversely criticise at all. And while we were there "pirates" sailed up and down the Severn!! A lovely peaceful... More

Went to this place to have a look at the arts and crafts. Thought we would have a drink while we were there. Wow coffee / walnut cake to die for. Sat outside over looking the river. Staff were lovely too. Definitely will return .

We visited the antiques centre for a relaxing cup of tea (which was nice) and a piece of cake. We were charged £2.50 a slice and it was dry and chewy. We complained to the waitress who was apologetic and took it away. The cake was not replaced and no money was given back! £5.00 is a lot to have... More

Really disturbed to read this review and the rating of "terrible". We work hard to make sure that our customers leave happy and have had a great experience, clearly we fell short on this occasion. As always I have carried out an investigation to establish what went wrong and have the following observations:- I have spoken to the waitress in... More

Called into the riverside tea rooms for a cream tea. Delicious. pot of leaf tea in china cups with free refill. Staff friendly... More

I have visited this arts and crafts centre on several occasions and always find something to spend my money on. There are inexpensive items, plus some higher value goods. The range is good, and some of the craft items are ingenious. I really recommend people visit. My only complaint is the cakes are so delicious I have to eat some.... More

Took my mum and Aunty and we all loved it. There was a lovely mixture of antiques, retro and new craft items. We were there ages browsing the different stores in a lovely relaxing atmosphere. We thought everything was very reasonably priced. I intend to bring my daughter and other friends too. It was so easy to find right next... More
